The S/L/A/M Collaborative and S/L/A/M Construction Services were selected to design and construct a major multi-phased, multi-year expansion and renovation of Chapel Haven’s campus located in New Haven, Connecticut. Chapel Haven is a residential school and independent living facility that empowers adults with cognitive and social disabilities to live independent and happy lives.
Construction Project Executive Gene Torone gives a construction update on the progress of the REACH building in the team’s first construction update video.
Phase one of the project consists of three buildings. The first to be built will be a 32,500-square-foot building that will provide housing and educational services for adults 18 years of age and older with mild developmental disabilities and autism. In this intensive 24-month program, REACH adults learn to negotiate all aspects of independent living while enjoying a state-approved education program and a nationally accredited transitional living program. Upon graduation, they may choose to continue living in the area and receive continued support from Chapel Haven.
